I agree with Michal, that the presenter can usually charge a workshop fee to
recoup expenses. However, the fee is encouraged to be as low as possible and
so in reality some of the expenses are not paid. We do need to be more
sensitive to this especially for retired teachers or anyone for that matter.
It is strange though that professional in education means we don't pay for the
information, but in business, professional means we do pay. Go figure. There
is a double standard between education and business. If you look at sports you
see the same thing. When athletes are in College they are not paid. When they
graduate and sign a contract they are paid thousands of dollars.
